I'm not much of a Tiger fan, but definitely rooting for him now.
From a process standpoint, that's just BS.

I have a feeling you just don't like him very much. He's had a brilliant career so far and there is no reason to believe he won't continue to excel.


I have him in my golf pool and I am bitter he's sucking it up this week. :lol:

Wow Faldo is really being an ass. He is unbelievably annoying. Any other player would probably have not gotten a penalty because no one watches them as close. And they also ruled before that his drop was ok before he signed the card. So shut up nick!

Oh, that explains it. :lol:

2nd place finish last week. No worries.

I see that 14-year-old made the cut. Good stuff.

That is what Bubba Watson said. They shouldn't allow fans to call in if the officials did not enforce the rule. While I believe the 2 stroke penalty is "correct" it is also simultaneously "wrong"

Really disappointing round from Freddy today. He's still right around even par, but he has had so many birdie putts that he just left short.

Tiger needed to get to -5 to really have a chance. What a bummer that he got more or less eliminated.

That is why i have issue with it. Once a determination has been made, which it was on his drop, it should be final.

If he shoots a 67 tomorrow, he wins.

The masters is a totally different animal when you are leading it. Day, scott and etc. will definitely feel pressure. Especially if they see his name approaching.

We will see. It would make a great story, but if Tiger loses by a stroke the controversy begins.

I hope Scott will just shoot a 66 and that's that.

Angel Cabrera is definitely one of those guys that could easily walk away with another green jacket.

Snedeker all the way. Hope he gets the win. Either him or Woods just as a giant f@$# you to all the people that say he should withdrawal.

For some reason, I'm really surprised Cabrera doesn't speak conversational English

Still pissed about this Tiger BS. It sucks that the penalty probably cost him a legitimate chance at winning. I hope Snedecker or Scott wins now, and that Tiger doesn't finish within 2 of them.

I will laugh and I will laugh if TW finishes within 2. But, considering he's 0-for-46 in making a comeback to win a major, I probably won't have to hold my breath about him winning (hopefully).

My wife and I are 2nd and 3rd respectively out of 49 in our Masters pool. Really need big days from Snedeker, Furyk, and Kuchar

Excuse my confusion on this, but would Tiger have been assessed the two stoke penalty, had Nantz not gotten involved?
